  1. Even the description has been lifted from the original listing; It looks like a bogus auction. Even if he had won the auction, I doubt that he would have even collected that car yet......
  2. Yes - they were fantstic designs and amazing machines. I think that there are only 5 of the CLK GTR Roadster. One is for same here if you
  3. Actually, the CLK GTR is not the same as the CLK DTM car. The GTR was entered and raced at Le Mans and other endurance series in 1998. The road equivalent cost in excess of 1 million pounds and looks like this: CLK GTR
  4. The parts are all for the European 918 V8 hence the part number. They will be fine for your 2000 V8. If the source is

  6. ..... yes, it was in the GT2 class - 1100Kg minimum weight. Still an amazing piece of Lotus racing history. I
  7. In December, I managed to arrange a few days with my Project car. The December weather was cold and dry(ish...) and I managed to do about 400 miles the two days. After such a long break, it is good to be reminded just how phenominal our cars are. We

  9. Problem solved! The Alarm had a fault which was diagnosed by a Cobra specialist. The unit has been replaced with a non-Cobra system. I was told that Cobra (as was) are no longer trading and that the brand has been aquired by another alarm manufacturer?.... I
  10. Thanks for the swift response - checked it already. It certainly appears to be the immobiliser
  11. The Cobra immobiliser on my 99 V8 has gone down. The engine is immobilised and I can
  12. My 1999 V8 falls into the high risk category. Although the engine is far from standard, so far there have been absolutely no incidents of coolant loss.

It is after all, a totally manual procedure with a time critical window for torquing down the cylinder heads. I think that it is very much a
  13. Correct - it is the same as the V8-GT at 7400 rpm. I
  14. Yes, but do you remember the one-make series that the car was design for?.... I remember the coverage and it was pure automotive chaos. I

  18. The T25 flange is used widely, but the Esprit has a bespoke round three bolt exhaust flange. This makes it a special
